“Like distant kin to movies like Sofia Coppola’s “The Virgin Suicides”
“Its a pleasure to see the film has developed from Pye´s artistic practice; wich work with ideas of feminity, nature, and the supernatural” Madeline"
“Captures malaise with beauty and style”
“Outstanding debut with its incredible soundtrack”
From the producers of David Cronenberg and Fernando Meirelles, comes the first feature from internationally acclaimed visual artist Sheila Pye. Crafting a striking psychological drama with elements of magical realism, this fierce and tender movie will have reminiscences of THE VIRGIN SUICIDES or MUSTANG. Fresh new faces, a secluded location where things are not quite like they seem (just like in STRANGER THINGS) and a striking soundtrack featuring Joy Division or Brian Eno amongst others will be the cherry on top of the cake.
Set in the 80’s amongst the sparse landscape of an isolated farming community, four restless adolescent girls band together to escape their troubled lives and patriarchal constraints by reclaiming an abandoned farmhouse as their own. Their growing emotional connection will lead them to a ceremony where they will vow to protect each other and the house at all costs. However when their secret world is threatened by a development corporation, the girls’ relationship will be tested to an extreme.
